As much as I have not enjoyed being sleep deprived, I must admit I have secretly enjoyed the majority of night wakings with my son. I love having him curled up next to me as he’s nursing. He’s growing up and becoming an independent little boy (as he should).
Lately, he’s been turning away from me after he’s finished instead of sleeping peacefully in my arms or he’s been all about nipples. Both of which do not bring the happy, joyful moments that I have enjoyed throughout the night.
So I finally decided to completely night wean him. Let me tell you, that first night was ROUGH! He woke up every 40 minutes from 2:30 am until 7am!
However, last night (the second night) he slept all the way through the night until 4:45 am! He hasn’t done that in months. I’m hoping this is the beginning of a beautiful sleep pattern. Now if only my dog could stop scratching in the middle of the night. Anyone know how to sleep train a dog? 😉
